Bringing Baby Home presents the work of Dr. John Gottman. This material gives parents research-based and research-tested information for constructively addressing the relationship changes during the transition to parenthood. The goal of this program is to strengthen families by helping couples learn effective communication techniques, skills for conflict resolution, and information designed to encourage parenting techniques that optimize baby’s quality of life.

We love babies, so please bring your baby with you if you deliver before the class starts. There is no fee for this class, however, the workbook is $39 (1 book per family).

This series takes place on Thursday evenings at our Granite Bay campus.

Please send an email to maryb@baysideonline.com if you are interested in attending or to hold your spot in the next class!

At MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), we come together as a community of moms and moms-to-be who seek authentic connections, support and personal growth. We believe every mother should know that what she does matters and that she isn’t alone.

Bayside Granite Bay MOPS is led by mothers of babies to preschoolers, who are passionate about bringing women together to share in the joys and challenges that this season of motherhood brings.

We gather together for a warm breakfast, enjoying encouraging guest speakers or doing fun crafts while our kids are cared for and making new friends in the MOPS kid’s program. Our group is a warm and inviting. A place where you can come – just as you are – to be refreshed and build friendships as a mom because we believe better moms make a better world.

MOPS meets Monday Mornings (Fall Semester starts September 16th)  from 9:15-11:15 am.

Dr. Kathy Koch will teach you proven strategies for training your child’s heart and parenting in a way that honors God. Dr. Kathy doesn’t offer a quick-fix. Starting with the heart is all about changing what children believe in order to change their behavior. And learning to use this kind of motivation takes effort, consistency, and strategy, but it works. And it’s never too late! If you’re willing to commit to a little hard work up front, you’ll enjoy your kids, your life, and yourself much more when you learn to start with the heart.

Winning the Heart of your Child, 9 Keys to Building a Positive Lifelong Relationship With Your Kids by Mike Berry
Many of us enter parenthood with a perfect vision of what our family will be. But along the way we discover that the children we’ve been blessed with are real human beings, with their own minds, ideals, and views of the world. Our influence only goes so far, and when those children reach the pre-teen and teenage years, it may seem to have disappeared completely. Yet at no time in a kid’s life is their parents’ positive, godly influence more critical. Mike Berry offers parents nine keys to maximizing and leveraging their influence to help their children through these difficult years and develop a relationship with them that can weather any storm.

The Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is a unique intervention model created by developmental psychologists Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross, founders of the Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University. It is based on more than a decade of research and hands on work with vulnerable children and their families.

TBRI offers in-depth training for parents of children with trauma-based behavioral issues. Children that have experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment, and/or trauma in early development can develop behaviors that can be confusing, frustrating and difficult to manage even for the most patient and loving parents. Come join us and become empowered, connected, and learn lifelong solutions that will build a stronger parent-child relationship.
